A manufacturer that has operations in Monroe County will be expanding that facility and adding up to 40 new jobs.

That’s according to Empire State Development, which says that ProAmpac will establish an innovation center in the Town of Ogden, adding a building onto its facility on Manitou Road.

The innovation center will focus on packaging development and design and also host regional and global companies and vendors for events and training. Officials say that ProAmpac had considered building the new facility out of state, but decided to expand at its current location with the support of New York state.

Empire State Development will provide up to $1.35 million through a capital grant and through the state’s Excelsior Jobs Program in exchange for job creation commitments. Monroe County and Greater Rochester Enterprise are also helping out.

ProAmpac expects the nearly $8 million project to be completed by June 2021. The company is based in Ohio and has 27 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
